File source problem with File:Claveyrolat.jpg

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Claveyrolat.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 16:12, 4 September 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Salavat (talk) 16:12, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Stamps featuring theme of World War II

1942 3¢ USA

I am interested in beginning to catalog all stamps ever issued anywhere in the world that feature a World War 2 theme. Please contact me if you are interested in contributing to this effort. (I am estimating at least two years of continuous, daily work will be required, though your time may vary.) Azx2 01:49, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Just spotted this and it made me remember my Pop, who collected some stamps, though not military-themed ones. Your project sounds cool, if really ambitious, but good luck! lol...maybe you should concentrate more on pro cycling though, first, since you seem to be pretty passionate about that? Regardless, good luck!! joepaT 21:02, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Greg LeMond

Hi - thanks for your feedback concerning our effort to improve the Greg LeMond article. It's only one of many that I'm interested in making the best on wikipedia, including Lance Armstrong's entry as well. I think they're both pretty fascinating characters, though LeMond's entry needs our attention now, since it's suffered inadequate editing for so long, imo. I wish I could include Alexander Vinokourov in the list of articles I will make a big effort on, but I don't think I'll be going back to edit that ever again. But if you feel inclined to edit the LeMond article more, please - you're welcome to...we can use the assistance! user:Gunbirddriver is helping as well and is my equal and more in that project. We're trying to get it to the point of "good article" status. Anything you can do to help is appreciated. Cheers. joepaT 20:59, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

sure thing. I'm maybe to edit on Greg LeMond now, but if not have a special "gift" (tho not really a gift, per se) to present you today!! Feliz Navidad! Azx2 20:18, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
Jesus cristo! Wow! Thanks (for the barnstars)! I'm going to have to figure out how to display all of them on my user page now! lol... Really appreciate the recognition, though, as we put a lot of hard work into that article. Cheers, and Happy New Year! joepaT 21:13, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
You both earned them. Good luck with the article ongoing if you continue to work on it. And Happy New Year to you as well. Azx2 07:53, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Michele Merkin

I just love this photo of Michele Merkin, which I recently discovered, and wanted to share it with todos! Azx2 06:57, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Why, thanks Self! That's IS a great pic! lol Azx2 06:58, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Wringer

Thanks for your comments. I have no plans to let me get squeezed. Any suggestions? (Nice girl, BTW.) --Jdemarcos (talk) 16:34, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Wish I could take some credit for the girl - cowabunga! As for the relentless criticism being directed your way, I'm afraid I don't know much about the intricacies of Wikipedia policies and dispute resolution mechanisms, but I would counsel you to continue your level-headed, rational, direct and consistent approach to dealing with the thugs. If you haven't already, it is probably also good to cultivate some allies who do understand the mechanisms that might be available to you, such as whatever exists to cite someone for disruptive editing, which I've definitely seen directed towards you (that is to say, which you've been a victim of). Anyway, good luck!! Azx2 02:17, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
The CoI allegation has been archived with no further action from the administrators. I think this closes the case, at least for the time being. And thanks for the advice! --Jdemarcos (talk) 12:07, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
You're very welcome, though really it was my pleasure to support and encourage someone who seemed to be caught-up in a frustrating situation. Good luck with all of your on-going and future projects!! Azx2 19:01, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Kash

No problem, choose the one you like best! Personally I'd go with a Lampre one. Cheers.--Leptictidium (mt) 19:15, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback - I'm definitely leaning towards the Lampre one as well. I'll give some time for others to reply, as I contacted a few others who'd contributed to the article in recent years, but if no other comments are forthcoming, I'll just switch the image to the Lampre one. Thank you again for taking the time to reply. Cheers! Azx2 19:18, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
The only other editor who responded also suggested this Lampre image (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Andrey_Kashechkin-IMG_1814.jpg), though they also thought it should be cropped. I'd be fine with that. Do you know if I want to crop the image, would I upload it to commons to replace the original, or as an entirely new image, and if so, how? Thanks! Azx2 18:15, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Papp, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bianchi (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Bikini

Looks nice, though I'm still not sure about the choice of the lead image. About the images I have three observations: (1) the images don't need hard coding as the default size is generally the preferred size; (2) the controversy section may have a beach volleyball image instead of a wrestling image as the former sport has drawn more controversies; and, most importantly (3) are you sure we need the gallery section? My strong recommendation is to get rid of the gallery outright. It's not adding much encyclopedic value apart from the Roman mosaics, and even those belong more to the History of the bikini article. And, before I forget, would you also take a look at the see also section? Because, I believe Burqini, Mankini, Monokini and Tankini are being overemphasized here (they already belong to the Bikini variants article), while White bikini of Ursula Andress looks like a fanboy inclusion. Haven't looked as closely as to find more hitches. Once again, the article definitely looks more encyclopedic now. Aditya(talkcontribs) 17:45, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Aditya - thanks for the quick response. I'll delete the gallery now (yours is the first feedback I've been able to get in months, so I'm happy to delete it as I was genuinely ambivalent). Will also look at substituting the wrestling image w/ one from beach volleyball. W/ respect to the lead image, I'll leave it in place now, but I was reading MOS:images and it says there the main image should be no wider than 300px so I guess I should scale that back, too? If I understand you correctly, are you saying that there are other images that should also just be size-defaulted to "thumb" that aren't currently? I'll also make the changes to the See Also section. Thanks for your feedback! Azx2 18:04, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Re:Bikini

Two responses to two different posts:

  1. The section doesn't "conclude". Encyclopedia articles don't conclude, editorial writing does. But, the sentence is so convoluted and is so scantily covered by the source that the best course of action would be to remove it altogether.
  2. I have made some changes to the etymology section. Please, check. Aditya(talkcontribs) 09:51, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
Hi Aditya! Thanks for getting back to me. Re. #1/conclude - sorry if I gave the wrong impression, but in using "conclude" I wasn't trying to draw any distinction b/w editorializing and encyclopedic writing. I just meant "conclude" like 'come to an end.' I appreciate your taking the time to clear that up for me though, the diff b/w editorial conclusions and the ending of an encyclopedia article. But at least we both are on the same page in thinking that last sentence is convoluted. Re. #2 - I'll take a look at your edits now! :) Cheers! Azx2 22:38, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

CWGC

You nominating the article served as nice kick in the butt and reminded me that improving this article was something that needed to be done. Still clean-up required, and a memorials section really is required but see no reason it would fail GA if those elements are addressed. I'll likely address any of to comments presented by the reviewer. I could use a bit more time to clean things up so the faith that no one ha jumped on to conduct the review is ok by me.--Labattblueboy (talk) 03:11, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for checking in with me, Labattblueboy. Really appreciate hearing from you, and great to know that you're committed to making that article the best it can be! Azx2 19:20, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Azx2, please if you could kindly spare some time and drop in your thoughts on the new steps, moderated by admin Nick-D, that are being taken to resolve the dispute regarding blitzkrieg on the Battle of Kursk article. EyeTruth (talk) 17:20, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for nominating

Thanks for nominating the Battle of Prokhorovka for GAC. Ever since I got the article to B-calss after the massive rework in late-May to early-July, I have been thinking of nominating the article for GAC or FAC but the whole thing looked too much extra work, and I wasn't even sure if the article was ready. I would have never overcome my inertia to nominate it for GAC. Thanks EyeTruth (talk) 16:53, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome, EyeTruth. I'm glad the nomination was well-received and that it will be a source of motivation to you to make a final push to ensure the article meets GA criteria. Not sure how long it will be until someone starts the GA-review, but whenever that happens, please take the lead in responding to any issues or suggested changes/improvements cited by the reviewer. If there are any issues in their eyes, they may put the review "on-hold" for 7 days, for example, to allow time to make the requested enhancements, after which they'd either pass or fail the article. And w/ you taking the lead in responding, I would expect the article to pass! Of course, by the time the review comes around there might not be anything left to do to the article and it could be a question of a simple pass. Cheers. Azx2 18:10, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Battle of France

I think G.A is very ambitious at this point. I have contributed to the bulk of the article in a substantial re-work a couple of years ago. Most of the sources I have - so if you get stuck I can help. Good luck. Dapi89 (talk) 22:22, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't understand your apparent two-faced approach to communicating with me, Piotrus. While you are polite and enthusiastic in this comment here on my talk page, on the talk page of the Battle of France article your comments can be interpreted as hostile, dismissive and uncouth (ex. raging that you are "fed up" with my actions, when I have no idea who you are even and to the best of my knowledge have never interacted with you). Will this be your standard means of communicating with me in the future, because if so, I'd prefer to have no contact with you whatsoever, as your lack of civility is off-putting to say the least! Azx2 20:47, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
I am sorry if I my comment was too abrasive; the fed up is related to a general trend that your submission was just a part of. I can AGF that it is the first time you submitted a GA nomination, so please keep up working on articles, but read Wikipedia:Good Article criteria, and do not submit articles until you are think they are not going to be quickfaile. If you are not sure if the article is close to a GA or not, you can ask for a WikiProject B-class review, Wikipedia:Peer review, or just ping an experienced GA writer/reviewer (such as me) for a quick comment. As for the "two-faced communication" - an expression IMHO about as uncivil as anything I've said, "dude" - blame the GA bots which leave automated messages. Cheers,--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:53, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Vote

So this time around Nick-D has suggested that a poll on the suggested wordings would be the best way to avoid the whole drama and reach a conclusion. All you need to do this time around is to place your vote for whichever version you think is preferable. The LINK. EyeTruth (talk) 17:13, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi EyeTruth. Thanks for the heads up, which I saw after leaving a very long comment and question on the article's talk page.
I'm going to CC Gunbirddriver on this, and Nick-D too, because I'm very seriously concerned with the neutrality of the presentation of the poll choices. While I recognize your preference for the second option (which I contributed significantly to the development of, for full-disclosure lol), I think you've presented it in such a manner (w/ positive comments that equate to obvious advocacy, whilst the first option is presented with a "blank" comment, that makes it appear as if there's nothing to recommend it as a choice!) as to introduce unintentional but undeniable bias into the poll that could make it impossible to have sufficient confidence in the results until the issue is addressed. At the very least, voting should be suspended until such time as you've modified the first choice to include a comment that summarizes the proposed edit and highlights its attributes, as you've done for the second choice. And if you're not able to provide a comment for #1 that is the equal of #2, then I still think voting should be suspended until another editor like Gunbirddriver could provide the comment for #1 in your place.
I also think those editors who've already expressed a preference for #2 should have the chance to revise their votes once the first option is summarized and its attributes highlighted in a comment appended to the poll.
I think this is a very serious issue in the context of the article in question and it demands our immediate attention (although I repeat that this is not a personal criticism of you or an insinuation that you've intentionally done anything inappropriate). Thanks. Azx2 21:12, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
As already stated on Nick-D's talkpage, I intentionally left it blank since I didn't want Gunbirddriver to eat me raw for making an assessment in his place. If it were an intended bias, then there would be no conspicuously blank space left for the comment. Frankly, anyone can go ahead and provide a comment there. But for the meantime, "pending" or anything else anyone prefers can go there. EyeTruth (talk) 22:32, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying, EyeTruth. I appreciate your taking the time to provide more detail and assuage my concern, and can understand why now you intentionally left it blank. I will add "Pending" now, if someone hasn't already. Also good on you for not reacting defensively. Cheers. Azx2 23:28, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the civility barnstar! I don't deserve it. I guess you missed the bit, deleted by 213 as libelous, where I said that he comes across as a snake oil salesman. Maproom (talk) 18:46, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Be that as it may (btw: you're welcome!), if 213 had any interest in actually improving the effectiveness of their contribution to the project, they would've taken on board your accurate, constructive feedback of how they come across and consider what they might've done to mitigate that for the future.

I've deleted and redacted the commentary you posted on the talk page. Do not restore that material or the link. Gamaliel (talk) 05:00, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Firstly, I don't appreciate your extremely aggressive and hostile tone, User:Gamaliel, and wonder if you manifest this confrontational, threatening style with all your interlocutors?
Secondly, I don't appreciate having a legitimate enquiry of mine deleted from a talk page to an article without any explanation or justification on the part of the censor.
Thirdly, who are you, exactly, to come here and command me not to restore legitimate material taking the form of a legitimate enquiry - nevermind the fact that there was no "link" present in the first place.
Fourthly, others (quotes reproduced below - original statements near bottom of this section) have already commented upon the unreasonable censorship taking place on that article talk page:
I don't believe you've acted appropriately or civilly and, in fact, I find your censorious behavior and seemingly hostile message left for me here to be so implicitly threatening and intimidating that I, an editor of Wikipedia for many years, do not feel I can safely continue contributing to the Project, absent some apology from you and an explanation for your seemingly questionable and intimidating conduct. Note to User:Citation Needed and Titanium Dragon that I cite here on my talk page statements you made elsewhere but have tried to make it clear by de-wikifying the signature text that you did not sign these here, that I'm simply quoting.

Gregkaye 19:48, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Gregkaye. I honestly don't recall what this might be in relation to, in which case it probably wasn't a big deal. I've been working on Bataillon d'Infanterie légère d'Outre-Mer primarily right now, so forgive me for not having more to say. Good luck w/ your work ongoing. Cheers! Azx2 20:21, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
It was on the Talk:ISIL page where you joined in another editors unjustified criticism and where I pinged you asking you to strike. Gregkaye 20:25, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure I understand what your motivation is, or more seriously, why you would ask me to delete my comment. Presenting a victim's narrative to me here, Gregkaye, and requesting that I strike a comment made in good faith to support the view of another editor on an article's talk page doesn't resonate... So while I acknowledge your request "to strike", I politely decline. || Respectfully yours, Azx2 22:06, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
There was nothing polite or justified here. Gregkaye 00:25, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Are you accusing me of incivility? That's an incredibly serious accusation, Gregkaye, and if it's not your intent to make, then I would respectfully request...that you strike. Azx2 01:50, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Azx2 - I just tried to email you, but received an automated response that your email account does not exist! It might well be my end, but it is probably worth checking in your settings you have the right address. Pedro :  Chat  10:48, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
